O'KEEFFE'S COMPANY HISTORYThe roots of O'Keeffe's® Company go back more than 20 years to an arid region on the California-Oregon border known as the Klamath Basin. Bill O'Keeffe was a rancher and diagnosed diabetic who loved his rigorous, physical work. The tough lifestyle, however, took its toll on his hands and feet. His daughter, Tara, seeing the pain caused by his chronically dry skin, was driven to find product that relieved her father’s severely dry, cracked skin. Applying her skills as a pharmacist, Tara and her father spent years creating and testing various formulations mixed in her kitchen, until, many years later, she developed the basic formula for what has become O'Keeffe's® Working Hands® and, eventually, O’Keeffe’s® for Healthy Feet®. Now, with the amazing quality of Bill and Tara O'Keeffe's formula, O’Keeffe’s® Company is committed to carrying out their legacy—developing skin care solutions that work as hard as you do. O'Keeffe's® Company is a family-owned business and is proud to support our workers, the backbone of every American community. In 2015, O’Keeffe’s® expanded their product line to include Working Hands® and Healthy Feet® in tubes. These are designed for those that prefer tubes for ease of use, portability and cleanliness but still want the same results provided by O’Keeffe’s® jars. In 2016, O’Keeffe’s® expanded again – this time into the Lip Care and Body Lotion categories! Like all O’Keeffe’s® products, NEW Lip Repair® Lip Balm and Skin Repair® Body Lotion are Guaranteed Hardworking Skincare.
1+ PRODUCT INFORMATION
Does Working Hands® differ from Healthy Feet? Healthy Feet uses the same science and is very similar to Working Hands but it is made with a special formulation to help penetrate the tough, thick surface skin of feet and heels. The idea behind having both products on the market was that many consumers don’t enjoy using the same product on their hands and feet, so Healthy Feet was created with similar ingredients and reformulated to be effective on thick, tough skin of the feet. Working Hands and Healthy Feet products do not contain: Any animal by-products, soy, or lanolin. What is the difference between the original O’Keeffe’s jars and the tubes? The two formulas are different because the jar formula physically cannot be put through a tube, so we had to make some tweaks to make that possible. However, the primary reasons that many consumers love the jar are still brought to life in the tube. It still contains a high level of glycerin, thus is extremely moisturizing and still unscented and not greasy. Both products are highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. The biggest difference between the two products is the package. Will the original O’Keeffe’s jar product still be offered? Yes, we will continue to offer Working Hands and Healthy Feet in both the tube formulas and the original jar formulas. How is O’Keeffe’s Lip Repair similar to Working Hands and Healthy Feet? Like all O’Keeffe’s products, Lip Repair is guaranteed relief – specifically for extremely, dry, cracked lips. It is fast-absorbing, hypoallergenic, and long lasting. How is O'Keeffe's® Skin Repair similar to Working Hands® Hand Cream and Healthy Feet Foot Cream? Like all O'Keeffe's® products, Skin Repair is Guaranteed Hardworking Skincare - specifically for extremely dry, itchy skin. It is fast absorbing, hypoallergenic, and long lasting.

Reapply as needed throughout the day. Rough & Red: Apply a small amount to dry skin - it's all you need. Reapply as needed throughout the day.
